Lupita Nyong’o, Camilla Belle, Kat Graham and more This Week in Fashion...

Though I give her character on Revenge plenty of eyerolls, her fashion sense in the real world deserves nothing short of a handclap. Ashley Madekwe was spotted at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood looking fresh-faced and flawless. She wore a pinstriped Thakoon Resort design. The sleeveless dress featured a high neck and a slim fitting skirt that fell just above the knee. The white design is broken up with a thick banded belt made of the same pattern turned in a different direction. A pair of golden Saint Laurent sandals and a matching Jimmy Choo ‘Carmen’ clutch finished off her look. Bravo Ashley!

Camilla Belle looked like a Grecian fairy in the blush gown she wore to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala. Designer Salvatore Ferragamo is responsible for this look. The dress features a plunging neckline, 4 tiers of skirt and a crisscrossed back. Diamonds and a golden clutch completed Camilla’s look.

These young girls as of late have been slaying the competition on the red carpet. Case and point, Miss Saoirse Ronan was spotted on the red carpet for the BFI London Film Festival Awards in London looking sharp. She wore a beautifully tailored velvet lapel suit from The Kooples Fall collection. A burgundy sheer lace top added that extra touch of pizzazz. A pair of lacey, open-toed Nicholas Kirkwood heels completed her look.

Kat Graham was seen at the GQ Men Book Party wearing a bold Juicy Couture design. The emsemble featured a Jacquard Floral Blazer and Matching Pants. Kat took this look up a notch in sass factor by opting to go shirtless and let the lapels of the blazer plunge. Meow much? Kat styled her look with a large black clutch and a pair of black pumps.

When your name is Angelababy…you have a responsibility to always bring it. Miss Angelababy did just that in a pale-pink, black and white Dior design that she wore to the premiere of ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea.’ The dress features a beautiful silky bustier and black-and-off-white silk skirt with a drapery adorning the hip. Black Dior pumps completed her look.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted attending the Marks & Spencer Dinner wearing Dolce & Gabbana look. She was there celebrating her new collection of loungewear for the retailer. With her being the Catsuit Queen, I can’t wait to see what designs she has in store.

Sarah-Jane Crawford, radio presenter and host (alongside Trevor Nelson) for the 2013 MOBO Awards wore a show stopping Forever Unique design. The ‘Serena’ lace strapless dress featured mesh panels on the sides and heavy embroidered detailing. She let the dress speak for itself opting to wear zero accessories.

Woman of the hour Lupita Nyong’o has taken the red carpet game by storm this summer and fall seasons. I have highlighted some of her looks and she just keeps winning so let’s take a look at some of her best fashion moments as of late while attending premieres and promoting the highly anticipated film ’12 Years A Slave.’ Lupita wore a Christopher Kane design that featured cut-outs and elastic paneling taking the “Little Black Dress” to a new level of chic. She finished this look with Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps, Kwiat jewelry and a silver clutch. Lupita looked gorgeous in LA wearing a white Miu Miu design that she styled with red Christian Louboutin sandals, a  Judith Leiber clutch, and Kwiat jewelry. At the New Orleans Film Festival Screening, Lupita wore a fiery Rodarte design that gave me all kinds of life. I am a fan of her impeccable style and I cannot wait to see her film ’12 Years A Slave.’
